Arrival is simply terrific. The story, script, cast, score and design all come together beautifully. If you're feeling downhearted about the future, and who wouldn't be this year, go and see this. You will be both stimulated and moved.
The Time Machine (1960) dir. by Guy Pal (Conquest of Space, War of the Worlds). I remember sitting down and watching with my mom when I was about ten. The morlocks ver very scary but I had a crush on Yvette Mimieux. Great steampunky H.G. Wells movie.
10 Things I Hate About You (1999) After learning that Bianca Stratford is forbidden to date until her man-hating older sister Kat finds a beau, Bianca's would-be boyfriend hatches a plan: pay moody school rebel Patrick Verona to escort the churlish Kat around town. Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt...TS comedy
